Mapping Mammoth Cave’s waterways

Students at Mercy Academy have designed a drone that can venture into the underwater passageways at Mammoth Cave National Park, home to the longest cave system in the world. Using data gathered by the drones during expeditions, students are finding areas that have previously gone undiscovered and unexplored.
Produced by Justin Decker, Sanam Magan, Bradley Downey, Ariel Findley and Kyler Hack, students at Pleasure Ridge Park High School in Louisville, Kentucky. Instruction provided by SRL Connected Educator Mary Dunn. Mentor support provided by Brian Spellman.
